Finally got a car wash a month after drifting around in the dirt and emptied my catch can, a good amount of oily gunk came out. Hopefully that means my intercooler isn't covered in oil anymore

I'll post pictures later, but I swapped a JDM 02 front end into my 2005 sti. Looks funny half black and half white right now. I really like how it came out looks much better than my beat up 05 front.

Love the E85 minus the cost per tank with a heavy foot. So it's not for my daily 110mi commute. It's a blast to drive with the extra hp/tq. The Subie comes alive on E85!

It depends on your mods but its doable. I'm doing 420hp on E85 and 376hp on the 93 with Cobb tune.

Very nice power. Im going to look into the E85. When the car is set up for it you can run E85 and 93 octane?

When you get it tuned you can get two separate maps set up. Personally I would choose one or the other but im a tad ocd with my cars and wouldnt want to mix the residual fuel left in the tank and lines.

Definitely not stock and yes, it's 420whp\407wtq on E85.

Yeah, I only had my Invidia TBE and tune in my 08 WRX for a year and half until a few weeks ago when I swapped to the above engine mods. Love it!

Yes, as Yankee mentioned, you can download both tuned maps into your AP and switch over as you desire. You just need to run the tanks empty or as close to before switching fuel type/map. Both fuels contain a little of each other but you want to remove as much as possible so as not to dilute the new tank change.

OCD, is a different story. lol 93 is for my daily commute as I get 23mpg's on it and E85 is for grinning ear to ear and making those V8's cry!

It all depends on what you want to do with your car. 93 does the job for DD, e85 picks up the pace (with the necessary mods), but if you plan to race your project you might as well go all out with vp109 or c16. Setting up a build is more than choosing a fuel check out the stickys.
